The second original, touching, twisted, and most of all hilarious novel for children by David Walliams -- beautifully illustrated by Quentin Blake "Mr Stink stank. He also stunk. And if it was correct English to say he stinked, then he stinked as well!" It all starts when Chloe makes friends with Mr Stink, the local tramp. Yes, he smells a bit. But when it looks like he might be driven out of town, Chloe decides to hide him in the garden shed. Now Chloe's got to make sure no one finds out her secret. And speaking of secrets, there just might be more to Mr Stink than meets the eye! or the nose.

Matt Lucas and David Walliams met in 1990 at the National Youth Theatre and were brought together by their shared love of Reeves and Mortimer. They have both starred in various TV and stage productions. Matt and David have written three bestselling series of Little Britain, and raised two million pounds for Comic Relief with a limited edition DVD. Recently they performed a record breaking run of their live show at the Hammersmith Apollo and have performed to over 650,000 people in the UK.From Booklist:
*Starred Review* Not to put too fine a point on it, but Mr. Stink stinks! “He was,” author Walliams tells us, “the stinkiest stinker who ever lived.” Why? Well, perhaps it’s because he is homeless—unless you can call the old wooden bench on which he spends all his time a home. No one ever speaks to him until the day that a sweet-natured little girl named Chloe says hello. This sets in motion a series of often hilariously funny events that involve not only Chloe but her politically ambitious mother, her insufferable younger sister, a pompous television host, and even, yes, the prime minister himself (who turns out to be pretty insufferable, too). Walliams—a British comedian-actor-writer—has a gift for crafting memorable scenes and, in the person of Mr. Stink, has created a delightfully offbeat character who may have a secret past. The cheerfully rude tone that informs most of his story takes a sharp—and rather jarring—turn for the sentimental at the end, but young readers won’t care, while readers of all ages will be thrilled by the in-a-word perfect illustrations of the great Quentin Blake (who else could draw a picture of stink?). Grades 4-7. --Michael Cart
